/ David Megginson <david@megginson.com> was heard to say:
| write the obit, or, if that's not the case, then (b) URNs need a
| general resolution mechanism that's not confined to a tiny area like
| XML processing tools.

I can't see how one would confine a resolution mechanism to XML
processing tools even if one wanted to. A resolver takes a URN and gives
you something else back. That can't be XML processing specific...

                                        Be seeing you,
